Their mission is simple: Find a cure. Stop the virus. Save the world. When a global pandemic wipes out eighty percent of the planet's population, the crew of a lone naval destroyer must find a way to pull humanity from the brink of extinction. Executive Producer Michael Bay presents The Last Ship, starring Eric Dane, Rhona Mitra and Adam Baldwin.
In TNT's "The Last Ship", [Executive Producer Michael] Bay has executive produced a dramatic series that never pretends to be anything more than pure entertainment, and that works for the series right from the start. It also has a compelling premise, based on the book of the same name by William Brinkley: A global pandemic has created a post-apocalyptic world in chaos, but one U.S. Navy team has been at sea (and under radio silence orders) for four months and missed the worldwide societal breakdown that followed the outbreak. On board, they are shepherding the scientist who might have the cure — which makes them a huge floating target...While "The Last Ship" won't be for viewers who want a lot of complexity and good writing, its predictability — ka-boom! — is not exactly a detriment in the summer. In fact, it might be the selling point. It's hot outside — don't make our heads hurt with effort. Just blow something up and let's get to saving humanity already.--Tim Goodman, The Hollywood Reporter, June 20, 2014
